Tennessee named tops for motorcoach travel

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee is the No. 1 state for motorcoach travel in 2009.

The designation comes from Byways Magazine, a bimonthly publication aimed at motorcoach charter and tour planners. It means the state is projected to have more motorcoach travel in 2009 than any other state.

Helping attract motorcoach travel are the Smoky Mountains, Bristol Motor Speedway, the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, music attractions in Nashville and Memphis and the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.

Following Tennessee in the 2009 projections are Virginia, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania.
